…I knew that I wanted to give it a pretty shade of something fabulous.  After skimming through your ideas and taking them into full consideration, Stacy, Wiola and Sandi in South FL took it!  I went with…

RIT’s Tangerine!!!

I still wanted something soft, so I opted to go with a lighter shade of orange, a peach if you will!

I used the washing machine for this dye job, added my salt…

…and just added half of a capful!  I used the small load setting and thought this would be enough to dilute the shade and make it a pastel.

When the top came out of the dryer, it looked a little something like this!!

Meeting up with some friends over Mexican (I mean, I’m back in LA, there’s no deep dish pizza anywhere, so this trip was inevitable!) I knew this was the right place to wear the updated top!

It actually matches my skin tone!!

We were seated by this fabulous looking server who had earrings that were fried eggs!!  They were fabulous and I couldn’t resist a shot with her before we were brought to our seats on the patio.

Some of us went to town and ended up leaving town with some leftovers.

Others opted for the grilled fish tacos…

A fun night out with pals to catch up was exactly the lay low evening that I needed.

Team Taco!

Team Tamale! (Plus a little remnant of salsa verde on my top...)

Note to self:  Self, check each photo taken by someone at the host stand on the way out.

We had a little cut off action going on, and not in a chic/cut off jeans kinda way.  Sorry JET!!
